Construction of a 5-MW solar farm by Primergy Solar LLC in Colorado has been completed as announced by company officials. The solar farm, which is located in Pitkin County, will give power to the local electric co-op Holy Cross Energy as part of a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA). The project initially called for 18,000 cubic yards of civil work and the construction of a 20-foot embankment. The Primergy team, on the other hand, was able to eliminate these features by adopting responsible and efficient building techniques, as well as low-touch land management. Primergy constructed the project without grading the site, reducing environmental effect.
There are around 13,700 solar panels installed, and Primergy chose unique solar solutions, such as bifacial panels and tracking systems, to assist maximize energy output. The panels also serve as a specialist anti-glare device, reducing reflected light for both planes flying overhead and neighbors. In addition to the project’s completion, Primergy received tax-equity financing from Regions Bank. Regions Bank assisted the firm in navigating the increasingly complex tax equity structure, providing knowledge in a growing renewable energy sector, and providing cost-effective finance alternatives. Primergy hopes to dramatically grow its clean energy platform in distributed solar solutions for additional local communities across the US now that the Pitkin Solar Project finance is in place.
“Pitkin County, like all of our initiatives, seeks to chart the most responsible route toward renewable energy in order to make communities more resilient and sustainable. Our ability to produce is the result of discipline and an intense emphasis on detail and procedure. We are pleased of the long-term relationships we’ve formed with Aspen community agencies and individuals, as well as Holy Cross Energy. When Primergy executes a project, you can be confident that it will be completed on schedule, precisely, and thoughtfully “Ty Daul, CEO, said
